Fixed penalty notices

We will issue a fixed penalty notice (FPN) on the spot or by post to anyone who has committed an offence such as:

  • littering
  • fly-tipping
  • graffiti
  • failure to clear up after your dog
  • abandoning a vehicle

If you receive a fixed penalty notice

There are two options available if you receive an FPN:

  • Pay the FPN within 14 calendar days of the notice being served (the date is shown on bottom of the notice). No further action will be taken
  • Dispute the serving of the notice and await the court summons or request a court hearing

Some offences offer a lower penalty if paid within 10 days.

If you do not pay or if the court rules against you, you may be liable to pay a higher fine.
